Steven George Lingenbrink

About me

Welcome to Lingenbrink Law, a shareholder of Kornfeld, Trudell, Bowen & Lingenbrink, PLLC. We are the largest personal injury law firm on the eastside. My partners and I have more than 100 years of collective legal experience in personal injury litigation. We handle all types of injury claims. My practice is limited to automotive and motorcycle collisions, wrongful death and other types of catastrophic injury. Call me for a free consultation at 425.284.6000


I have worked extremely hard for my clients over the past 30+ years.  As such I have had the ability to develop hobbies in the area of motor sports, wine collecting, travel and international service through Rotary International.  I served as the District Governor of Rotary International District 5030 in 2012-13. And an currenlty the Assistant Rotary Coordinator for Rotary International Zone 25. Furthermore, I was recnetly selected as the Plaintiff Trial Lawyer of the Year (WDTL 2012). 


As a successful personal injury attorney I believe in the philosphy, "to whom much is given, much is expected." 


Please review my website to see how I put that philosphy into action.
